Experiment 6 - The Lorentz Transformation, the Photoelectric Effect and the Millikan Oil Drop Experiment
The purpose of this Physics 150 lab is to validate the Lorentz Transformation, to study the Photoelectric Effect and derive a value for the Planck Constant, as well as estimate the charge of an electron using data from the Millikan Oil Drop Experiment.
